Rocket League tournament proceedings

“7.1 Punctuality

Managers/captains need to check in 10 minutes before the match is scheduled to start on discord. Failure to do so will result in having to give up a free goal.

Teams get a five minute grace period to attend their scheduled match and field three players before they receive one of two penalties. If the team is less than ten (10) minutes late to the round, they must give a free goal at the start of the game. If the team is more than ten (10) minutes late, they receive a game loss penalty.”

This means that any teams that don’t check in on Discord by 12:50pm AEST must give up a free goal.

This means any teams that don’t have their full team in the lobby before 13:05 AEST must give up a goal

if a team check in late AND don’t get their full team the lobby before 13:05 AEST time they must give 2 goals (by meeting both of the above conditions)

This means any team that don’t have their full team in the lobby by 13:11 AEST time forfeit the game

What your team needs to do on game day?

Check in – 12:30pm – 12:50 pm AEST time. Check in by having your teacher or captain say “[team] check in” in the #rl-checkin channel

Once both teams are in the game lobby make sure both teams are ready and then start the match. You can make sure both teams are ready by asking in the game lobby. Don’t start unless both teams say “Ready”.

Once you have checked in please create the lobby with the specific settings and invite your opposing captain (the team on top of the match up hosts the lobby and invites).

In the example below the teams with the red line would host as they are the team on top in the match up.

e.g. 

If your game is being streamed, our broadcaster will create the lobby and invite the two teams.

If your opponent is not ready at 13:05 AEST time take a screen shot and let your regional admin know.

If your opponent is not ready at 13:11 AEST time take a screen shot and let your regional admin know.

Otherwise feel free to start the game when both teams are ready, even if its before 13:00 AEST time. Remember to make sure both teams are ready by asking in the game lobby.

Once the game is over remember to say gg wp =D

The winners are required to take a screen shot of the victory/score screen and post it to the discord channel #rl-results with the caption “Match #, team x wins”

Match number can be seen by the number to the left of your match up

e.g. 

Once your match is over and you have reported your score you will wait for your opponent to complete their game and then repeat the above steps.

Good luck everyone
